Karen Swanson: Wear a mask for all of us

Reader urges people to wear a mask, keep your distance, and wash and sanitize your hands.

Reader Opinion letter

Do you remember hearing these statements/comments?

There are very few COVID cases, we have it under control.

When the weather gets hot COVID will be gone.

The number attributed to COVID deaths are mostly due to underlying conditions; but, hospitals report them as COVID to receive financial compensation.

A vaccine will be widely available before Nov. 1.


COVID will be gone after the election.

Any of this sound familiar?

If COVID is a hoax, why all the comments about it; many directly from the one who says it’s fake news and a hoax.

Why do we need a vaccine when it’s not real?

When it affects someone in your family it is real.

Wear a mask. Keep your distance. Wash and sanitize your hands.

For me and your loved ones, show respect.

Karen Swanson
